Conservation Report:  Chris talked about the State funding fish habitat and would like some opinions or interests on a lake that could use something like this.  Chris is open for suggestions.  There is a lot of work that goes into something like this so we would have to be serious about it.  Bob talked about ramp clean-up and was presented with some line containers that can be placed at the selected lakes like American, Black, Clear and Spanaway.  I believe this is still being discussed with Fish and wildlife.
